The Olympic Park, off limits to the public since the end of the London 2012 Games more than six months ago, is reopening for short visits.
So far, 20,000 tickets have been purchased by people wanting to get their first glimpse of the site in Stratford where Olympic and Paralympic medals were won.
The Park in Progress Tours are set to run on weekends and during school holidays from March 29 to June 23. Visitors will have to wear hard-hats and high-visibility jackets as the venue is now once again a construction site.
It will reopen as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, complete with housing, businesses, parklands and venues to stage sporting, entertainment and community events.
- Tickets will cost £15 for adults, £10 concessions
- Children's tickets will cost £7 for those under 17, with under-fours free
- Special rates for groups of ten or more
- Park is due to open in phases starting in July
- Trees and shrubs will be added to make it a greener space
Tours of the Park in Progress begin on the 29th March, and tickets are on sale now.
